N.O.I.S.E stands for New Objectives in Sound Exploration. They were an online internet group involved in the demoscene between the years 1995-2002. Much of the music they put out was electronic in nature, however it also spanned numerous genres and wavescapes.

I have taken the liberty of converting all of the S3M/MOD/IT files to mp3 for your listening pleasure. I've also included the original files for anyone who is interested. The id3 tags have been updated with all of the information I could possibly cram into them.
